The New York Posts‘s Michael Shain takes two recent stories: Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes‘ comments on Fox News, and CBS CEO Les Moonves‘ comments at the University of Texas, and puts them together to once again float the idea that “CBS Evening News” anchor Katie Couric may make the jump to CNN when her contract expires.
Rumors of Couric leaving CBS to go to CNN go back years, with the possibility first mentioned on TVNewser back in 2008. The Post article does not appear to have any new information, and is based solely on the comments made by the two executives, along with some speculation about “Parker Spitzer.”
